Wow!  This in NOT a commercial message, although it will seem like one.

Came up on my annual renewal for antivirus/spam/malware for my laptop and office workstation.  And just for kicks, I googled “Top 10 Antivirus”

The curious part is the there are a variety of opinions with vastly different results.  But at the top of most reviews was Bitdefender.  When I clicked on it I got a “Black Friday” special.

That’s only a part of this story.  Overnight or without my really noticing, many of the nagging issues that plague desktop and laptop computer have been addressed by Bitdefender – and I assume by a host of others.  But my current antivirus – which will remain unnamed – is still locked in the antivirus/antispam mode that I have been used to for years.  And they want $90 to renew for 2014.
So I jumped ship and purchased Bitdefender Total Security FOR $22 (three computers).

After buying online and downloading here’s what I now have – for good or for bad.  (I haven’t experienced its behavior and features yet.)

ID Theft Protection
Safebox
Parental Control
Facebook Protection
Antitheft
Digital Wallet

In addition to Antivirus, Antispam, and Malware protection.

I must say, their eCommerce site was VERY confusing, but I took a chance on the special offer for one year and so far am AMAZED.

Why?
Because there are many issues surrounding 21st Century computing, especially Internet access, identity theft, multi-device useage and centralized data access, as well as keeping track of passwords and private information.

Happy Black Friday everybody!
